Interested in decorative painting for your home or business? When you first contact me, I’ll ask some general questions about your decorating wants and needs in preparation for a one-on-one consultation. We will then schedule an in-home or business meeting at no charge at a mutually convenient time. There is a non-refundable $75 charge toward my time and travel for this preliminary conference if the appointment is farther than 35 miles from my home, but it is converted as a credit if we move forward with the project.
I need to see the area you want to decorate before I can estimate the cost of the project since every job is different, and priced according to multiple factors. These include the overall square footage; the texture of the wall or surface I will be painting; potential obstacles, including doors, windows, and permanent fixtures; ceiling height; the cost of supplies; the travel distance; detail of work; difficulty of finishes; how long it will take me to complete the job; and whether I will be doing more than one job. Because so many variables affect pricing, giving an estimate over the phone or on the spot is impossible.
At the initial on-site consultation, we will identify your goals for the area you wish to enhance. You will have the opportunity to review various sample boards and my portfolio while I take photos, notes, and measurements. If you are unsure what you would like to have done, I can help you in making choices with the technique and color combinations.
After our visit, I will prepare a proposal for your specific needs and present it to you either in person or by fax, mail or email. If we agree, a 30% deposit is necessary to schedule the job and to begin creating sample boards. For each individual project, I will complete up to three sample boards, additional boards are available for $35 each. When completed, we will meet briefly for your approval. The remaining 70% is due when the job is complete. Weekly draws may be requested on larger projects.
